To commemorate #25YearsOfWolves in Yellowstone, we’re broadcasting on Facebook live each Tuesday in March (starting next week) to share what we’ve learned and answer your questions. On March 31, at 11am MST, we’ll discuss the future of wolves in Yellowstone.The most pressing issue facing wolves today is us, humans. Roughly 80% of wolves in the northern Rockies die from human-related causes. The value we place on intact ecosystems and our attitudes towards predators will continue to influence their future as a species. We look forward to having these conversations with you over the next month! Don't forget to tune in next week! Full live schedule at: go.nps.gov/YellSocialMedia
